I think installing outside --prefix is evil, unless Subversion is
explicitly configured to do so.

What happens if I have Subversion 0.18 installed and I install HEAD
locally to experiment? If you overwrite the 0.18 Python installation
you may break it. --prefix is the only safe place to put it.

Set the PYTHONPATH environment variable?
